Fire Karl Rove

Posted by Bob Brigham

Karl Rove has got to go. No apology, no compromise, no more White House access. Earlier today, I launched a Fire Karl Rove Petition that has been signed by over 1,000 people -- including many bloggers.

Now the DNC has a petition, headlined Fire Karl Rove:

White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, desperate to save a presidency sinking under the weight of its own failures, stooped to lying about Democrats' reaction to the terrorist attacks of September 11th. He said that Governor Howard Dean and others wanted to, "offer therapy and understanding to our attackers."

The truth is, Dean and others supported the war in Afghanistan because they believe the top priority in the war on terror should be capturing or killing Osama bin Laden and ensuring that Afghanistan and the region no longer provide a safe haven for terror.

Nearly four years later, a Republican administration and the Republican Congress have failed to catch bin Laden, and major forces have been diverted away from the hunt. Meanwhile, Afghanistan has again become the engine of an international drug trade that fuels terrorism in the region and elsewhere.

The American people pay Karl Rove's salary. If his only response to the administration's serious failure to capture or kill bin Laden is to smear political opponents with lies, he should be fired immediately.

Sign this petition urging George W. Bush and Chief of Staff Andrew Card to fire Karl Rove immediately.

Last night, the White House manufactured a scandal to divert attention from the fact the Republican Leadership is politically impotent. The White House is lashing out in desperation as more and more Americans realize that the Republicans have failed America. We are better than this and we deserve better from those who serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States. Karl Rove has disgraced our goverment, our White House, our America -- he needs to either resign or be fired. With haste.

The Fire Karl Rove petition is about to be thrown in the trash. I worked really hard to get names on it. Please don't let Petition Online just chuck it.
